Talk shows are amazed that they admitted they wanted to get away from the election.

For those discounting this because the OP references the huffington site

"It's a dangerous road, but we have no choice," a top McCain strategist told the Daily News. "If we keep talking about the economic crisis, we're going to lose."

True - McCain is road-kill if the public focuses on the economy..

That is why he is going negative - to hell with the issues - just do some character asassignation and hope to pull the wool over the eyes of the sheeple.

I worry about this - because you should never underestimate the Republican Party's ability to fight dirty. Obama is going to get all sorts of mud slung at him from here on in.

I hope the American public is not gullible this time around, and focuses on what is most important now... the economy. I think they will - given that the economic news has been pretty bleak these past 3 months.
